For a particular page layout-

Field is Read only .

I am logging in as X Profile-

Profile does not have 'Edit Read only field' permission
Profile has Create /Edit/Delete permission but does not have View All/Modify All.

What could be the reason?


Go to one of the user records. Click on their profile. Then click on the System Permission link and look for the Edit Read Only Fields permission.

  • @Samir- The profile does not have that permission. – SFDCRookie Nov 8 '16 at 10:07

    Permission sets are meant for extending the accessibility not restricting the accessibility. if the User's Profile does not have any access to the fields, then check the permission set – Samir Nov 8 '16 at 10:23

    This should be the accepted answer. :) – Semmel Dec 11 '20 at 14:29
